Can Jason Aldean supplant 1 Direction as the most search for concert?
In the horse race we like to call the Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches, One Direction is still way out in front. However, country music stars Jason Aldean (#2) and Taylor Swift (#4) are surging with new albums outs and tour dates about to go on sale. While 1 Direction still has a comfortable lead, we expect demand for Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift tickets to increase as tickets go on sale and quickly sell out.
As always, college football continues to be in big demand with power house SEC teams Alabama, Texas A&M, and Georgia leading the way.
Here is the rest of this week’s top 10..
